March 23 is the death anniversary of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh, who was hanged along with his associates on charges of attempting to assault and kill the then British viceroy. This was to free India from the colonial rule. Post Independence scenario, Congress which pioneered freedom movement under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel and B R Ambedkar, compares some of the ‘so called’ student leaders’, who are basically hirelings and thugs who talk of freeing Kashmir from Indian occupation and call for azadi (god knows from whom?) as present day Bhagat Singh. People of this country voted out Congress for their scams and misrule. Their leaders, no doubt are feeling the loss of power and position. What is pitiable is, majority of them are suffering from foot-in-the-mouth syndrome. They are not aware, what comes out from their mouths, thus embarrassing their party. This is the fate of century-old political party today.
